This event is part of the annual Beach & Riverside Cleanup, in partnership with the Oregon Lottery, and the International Coastal Cleanup, a world-wide effort to keep our beaches healthy. Help us protect marine life and maintain the beauty of our coast. Be prepared by dressing for any weather and wearing sturdy shoes. You are encouraged to bring your own reusable bucket/bag, gloves, and water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. If you happen to forget, SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. Don’t forget about the small stuff! The most commonly found items of trash found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shore birds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items. This beach cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding. Please remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water and marine mammals, and never turn your back on the ocean! Please keep dogs on a leash. If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Thompson Sanitary Service and Lincoln County. Meet at Yaquina Bay State Recreation Area. Driving South on US 101, follow signs for Yaquina Bay State Park right before the Yaquina Bay Bridge. The turnoff will be on the right. There is plenty of free parking in the State Park. Meet at the overlook across from the lighthouse. There will be a Beach Captain present to register volunteers and hand out supplies.
